Outta the Muck

This film offers a portrait of Pahokee, FL, a small, rural city on the banks of Lake Okeechobee that has a population of 5,962, with 36 percent living below the poverty line. Its hopes and dreams rest on the Pahokee Blue Devils high school football team. Over the past two decades, more than a dozen NFL players have come out of "the Muck," as the region is called, and many more have played for NCAA Division I college programs.
